Notwithstanding all that, they are absolutely beautiful in their simplicity and elegance. In very good vintage condition. Upon request, a video of the pieces will be provided. Maker's mark on underside: 'Porcelaine Virebent Made in France'. 

About the Artist: Yves Mohy (1928 - 2004) studied architecture at the Beaux-Arts School in Paris, then ceramics at the Ecole des Arts & Metiers. After his studies, Yves Mohy arrived at La Borne, France in 1955 during the difficult post-war era. The isolation and poverty of this village of potters didn't make things any easier. It would be a lifelong journey of travelling to different parts of France to fully master his craft. Mohy favoured sandstone, first to create utilitarian pieces, then worked to improve the textures and coatings of his pieces by mastering the firing process to obtain surfaces of great finesse. Later Mohy combined sandstone and other materials such as wood, cast iron, slate, etc., creating highly architectural pieces which are now highly collectible and available for sale at the international auction houses.
